I know how a chariot works when it charges, but what if it doesn't kill the unit it charges, can it attack at all in later rounds of combat or just its crew?
It will continue to attack like any other unit in the following rounds. The only thing that makes chariots different from, say, a cavalry squadron are the impact hits. So on the first round that it charges, it attacks as normal plus it's impact hits. If the combat continues for another round, crew, characters and creatures pulling them attack as normal, but no more impact hits.
Does that make sense?
One thing about chariots is that any creatures pulling it can only attack if they are engaged base to base with the enemy. If my black coach gets hit in the rear, the nightmares in the front can't fight back. Only the wight can.
Obviously, if the chariot remains engaged in combat for more than one round, it will not do any more impact hits, but otherwise it's just as Mishra says.
Maybe base to base isn't the best word to use.. If only the front corner of your chariot is touching the opponent in combat, both (or all in some cases) steeds can still attack. Ie. they're counted as one model, not two. Side or rear though, as you said, steeds can't attack.
That pretty much covers it..
thanks for the info, that was really bugging me for some reason
